Conor Gallagher has reacted to Gareth Southgate’s decision to take him off at half-time against Slovenia.

Conor Gallagher started England’s Euro 2024 final group stage game against Slovenia, but was hauled off at half-time, as The Three Lions looked off the pace.

Gallagher has admitted he didn’t feel nice about being subbed off at half-time, but he understood the situation.

“Obviously, it is not nice and you want to play as much as possible,” the Chelsea midfielder told talkSPORT.

“Getting an opportunity to start a game for England at a major tournament is incredible and I was really excited.

“But it was a really difficult game, I don’t think we were playing particularly great. We weren’t really creating any chances.

“I understand the manager wanted to change a couple of things tactically and bringing on Kobbie [Mainoo] to come a little deeper and pick up the ball, completely understandable.

“What is great about the manager is that he came and told me before he told the team so I knew and it was fine.

“Obviously, you want to play as much as possible but I completely understand.”
